We stayed mid-week in July 2014 after buying a Groupon voucher for a two night stay. When we arrived the pub downstairs was really busy with guests and locals as it was dinner time. It seemed like a lovely place for a meal and drink. We got shown to our room by a really friendly member of staff and when we saw the room we couldn't believe how spacious it was, it was more than just a bedroom. There was a lovely little sitting area next with the tea/coffee making facilities. We had room 1 so don't know if the other rooms are the same or not. There were a few bits in the room that could have done with a tiny bit of work, for example some small drilled holes in walls that hadn't been covered up and the bathroom was a bit small. However, these are things that are purely cosmetic and nothing to worry about at all. There is wifi in the room with pretty good speed. The room was clean and had all the necessary items, hair dryer, some toiletries etc.
The best thing was how friendly, helpful and willing to make our stay and nice as possible. For example breakfast was served until 9am (the cooked breakfast was fabulous, made from decent ingredients as well as being a very generous portion), I asked if I could take a cooked breakfast up to the room for my partner who wanted a lie in on both mornings and the team who served and cooked could not have been more helpful and understanding. They wanted to make sure that it was cooked just in time so that it would not get cold by the time I had eaten mine. They made sure that I had everything, including sauces etc. Such wonderful staff, always willing to chat and tell you what the local attractions are, show you directions etc.
We would definitely stay again, excellent customer service.
